‘Mood on ship is good’: TV reporter recounts vacation aboard ‘Ebola cruise’

As Twitchy reported, an unidentified female worker who handled clinical specimens from an Ebola-infected patient is on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. That ship is heading home to its home port of Galveston after being turned away by Cozumel, with the health worker self-quarantined and under constant monitoring.

In the meantime, it’s still a cruise ship full of people on vacation, and one of those people is Denver TV reporter Eric Lupher, who decided to report from the scene. For the most part, it’s vacation as usual. Ebola cruise beats poop cruise any day.

I'm on the Carnival ship with the Ebola scare. Mexican authorities not allowing us into Cozumel. Heading back to Galveston.

No further communication with the ship's captain after being denied clearance into Cozumel. The mood on the ship is good though.
